The PDF docs are useful but apply only to the original game and not to the Mini vMac interface. Keyboard commands indicated in the manual do not work, and the mouse cursor disappears in the Mini vMac window, rendering Hardball unplayable.

Is there any way to get keyboard commands to work here?

Combining the cracked upload already here with my original uncracked disk, I've made a bootable disk image (works with Mini vMac) and added full docs in PDF, as the second archive above.

Awesome; I purchased this game years ago and HBII but still go back to this one. I hated the spin wheel of HBII to thwart thieves and liked the simplicity of HB. I used to have it play itself as a mean to learn scoring a game. It's one of my fave B&W games.
